    Thanks! I have a couple sets of Ox4s... leaning towards Wizz nowadays though (and Rewind for some diversity).

    Not much of a collection. Anyhow, an R0 Joe Walsh and a 120th Anniversary Les Paul Standard Plus, flanked by a couple of Fenders to cover whatever musical moods of the day

    and the ďfill in the blanksĒ can be an SG or Explorer or Jazzmaster or ....

    anyhow, Merry Christmas all and Happy New Year!

    The lighting right now literally kills all flame on these tops, but I just snapped this a minute ago.

    Also I used to own the OPís Brazilian antiquity burst. That top still makes me drool, and itís such a good player. Glad to see it getting played and displayed properly!

    Wish I could post a bigger pic. Left to Right, '94 R9, '18 Braz R9, Gibson Aged, '97 Elegant, '15 Special, '95 Jimmy Page Signature, '18 Braz R9, '15 TH R9

    Re: Les Paul collections. Letís see yours

    Both of these guitar get the job done, the R7 is featherweight at 8.1 lbs and the R0 is 8.9lbs. They are both bone stock and stellar instruments.

    Nice Guitars JPP!

    What do you like playing more or sounds better? The Brazilians or the 60th Anniversary? Swapping those pick-ups would be an interesting experiment.

    Thank you. - to the guy who i think might have the most awesomest collection of all. Btw, Mike, if you donít have a camera drone to capture your entire collecrtiom, multiple part pictures are fine too.

    Thanks! I like playing them all. I suppose my lemonburst brazilian might be my overall favorite. But this is a preference rather than a qualitative observation. The Wildwood spec custombuckers in the 60th are very nice. I may at some point swap them out form some rewinds or OX4s which is something i have done in all my other historics.

    Are you kidding me? That's more like a museum collection than a personal one. God bless man!
    Seriously, u could open a guitar museum and charge admission with that lot.

    Ok so there always has to be one AH in every post- today it will be me.
    How about a contest between Daune F and Slub to get a single pic with all their LPís? I respect the hell out of both guys and their incredible collections- but I want to see them in a single shot.
    I am rather certain it is too much work- and I get it- but might involve some special lenses...
